Microsoft announces Windows 7 TV, Set Top boxes device capability for OEM.

April 27, 2010

Microsoft has announced, to industry, Windows 7 TV, Windows 7 Set Top Boxes and other Windows 7 device capabilities for it's software.

The capability for Windows 7 to be integrated with media devices such and TV, Set Top boxes and other devices further allows Windows 7 to be used as an interface for multi-media usage.

Windows 7 for TV and set top boxes would potentially allow for greater connectivity between different devices, including connectivity with Windows 7 PCs and servers.

Users could also benefit from a familiar design and user interface between different devices.

A Windows 7 TV and Windows 7 PC could potentially have a common 'look and feel' and hence allow for ease of use.

Another benefit, through the connectivity, could be the merging of media, such as movies and photos.  If such merging is relatively seamless, then users could potentially get more out Windows 7 devices,

It would be nice to think that photos and home movies on a PC, could also be displayed seamlessly on a family TV with the ease of use of a common interface.

Yet this announcement also covers Windows 7 Set Top boxes and other Windows 7 devices for media use.  Windows Media Centre itself could become an even more powerful product.

Windows 7 TV and other devices were discussed by Microsoft in 2009, when Windows 7 was released.  This recent announcement by Microsoft, to industry, is for the release to industry of Windows 7 media device capability through OEM.

The future take up by industry, for example TV manufacturers, of this Windows 7 TV component over the next few years should be interesting as the benefits can flow onto the users/consumer.

Microsoft continues to spread and broaden it's products reach and in some sense this Windows 7 TV OEM released further enhances the usefulness of Windows 7.
